Prodromos is the highest village in Cyprus at 1,380 meters above sea level. It is the island's main centre for winter sport, with three ski slopes located on nearby Mount Olympus. The village is part of the Limassol District. The number of inhabitants has decreased steadily over the years; by the 2011 census there were only 123 permanent residents, although there are over 240 residences that are temporarily occupied, mostly during the summer and other holidays.
Prodromos is named after John the Baptist, who is commonly referred to in Greek Orthodox tradition as 'Prodromos' ('Forerunner' to Christ).
